Keep Your Gutters Cleaned Out and Maintained this Fall.

Image
Fall is in full swing which means that it's time to start on your fall home maintenance checklist if you haven't already. The leaves will begin to change and start falling off the trees very soon. Maintaining your gutters during the fall when the leaves start falling is extremely important and can help extend the life of your Lake of the Ozarks roof. In today's blog, we'd like to share with you some tips for your fall gutter maintenance.


Cleaning Your Gutters
One of the most important fall home maintenance tasks is cleaning out your gutters. It's also one that could easily be overlooked. Removing debris from your gutters and downspouts is critical to preventing water damage to your home. If water cannot drain off your roof properly, it can pool up. Those pools of water will cause wear and tear on your roof that can eventually cause a roof leak. Once water gets into your home, even more, damage can occur. Cleaning your gutters twice a year is one of the best things …

Questions You Should Ask Your Roofing Contractor

Image
Your roof is an investment and when it comes time to make any roof repairs or replace your Lake of the Ozarks roof you want to make sure the roofer you choose will do a great job. Before you hire a Lake of the Ozarks roofing contractor, you should take the time to ask them a few questions to ensure they are the right contractors for the job. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has a list of questions to keep in mind before hiring your next roofer.


Question #1: Do you have the necessary licenses and insurance required for a roofing contractor in this area?
Roofing can be a dangerous job, that requires proper training, licenses, and insurance. You want to make sure they have a current license, general liability insurance, and workman's comp insurance. Be sure to ask for the relevant paperwork as proof. At Above & Beyond Roofing, we carry insurance and workman's comp for all employees.



Question #2: How long have you been in the roofing business? How much expe…

**Attention Homeowners**

At Above & Beyond Roofing, we want to not only provide our customers with top-quality roofing services at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we also want to keep all homeowners informed. In today's blog, our owner/operator, Ben Krokson, would like to inform all homeowners of the dangers of some roofing companies that take advantage of homeowners through insurance claims. See what Ben Krokson has to say below!



 If you are in the market for a new roof due to any kind of storm damage, we advise that you be very careful when dealing with other Roofing Companies around the lake area. These other Roofing Companies are only giving bids if you have an Insurance Claim. They will hound you for your Insurance paperwork and if you don’t supply it to them they won’t provide you with a bid. 
The reason they do this, is because they don’t know how to bid a roof without the Insurance Company doing most of the work for them. Then if the roof isn’t bought they will claim that the Insurance Company is no…

Image
Fall is almost here and it's a great time of year to clean your siding! With the weather cooling down just a tad but still warming up in the afternoons, fall is a great time clean your siding. Cleaning your siding once per year can extend the life of your siding and keep the exterior of your home looking great. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few tips for cleaning your siding this fall!


1. Inspect for Damage Before Cleaning. 
All types of siding are vulnerable to water infiltration, especially where it butts against windows, doors and corner moldings. You'll want to check for caulk that has cracked due to age or has pulled away from the surface, leaving a gap. If you have wood siding, check for chipped or peeling paint, as well as cracked wood and trim. For stucco, look for cracks and chips, and for brick, look for crumbling mortar joints.

2. Use Warm, Soapy Water. 
The best way to clean your siding is by hand with a bucket of warm, soapy water. Use …

3 Tips For Choosing a Roof Color

Image
When it comes time to replace your Lake of the Ozarks roof, there is a lot you will have to think about. From choosing the best roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks, roofing material, roof color, and more! It's important to take the time to choose a roof color carefully. A quality roof should last for 15-20 years and even longer if you choose a metal roofing material, so choosing a color you will like for many years is important. Today, our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company has some tips for choosing your roof color!


1) Compliment Your Siding While you want your roof to compliment the siding on your home, you don't want them to match. Choosing the exact same shade for your shingles and your siding won't look as good as it sounds. The most visually appealing roof and siding combinations are colors that are complementary. In addition, if your siding is busy, like brick or stone, you want to choose a simple single color for your roof. Two multi-color combinations wil…

Quality of Work Improper installation and poor workmanship are one of the…

What To Do If Your Roof is Buckling

Image
Have you ever noticed a roof that appears to be lifting up in certain areas? Maybe you noticed it while you were driving or maybe your roof appears to be lifting up? In the roofing world, we call this "buckling." Not only does this not look great, but it can also be causing major damage to your home. Today, your favorite Lake of the Ozarks roofing company would like to share with you what causes a buckling roof and what happens if you don't address the issue. 

What Causes a Buckling Roof 
When your roof is buckling, it resembles a large air bubble that stretches the roof sheathing, felt and shingles. This can be caused by a variety of different circumstances:
Improper Installation of Felt or Underlayment - Buckling can occur when the felt or underlayment is not installed properly. If these products are wrinkled, it can easily show through the roof shingles, as the shingles are installed over it. Movement in the Roof Deck - The roof decking is the plywood sheets that cover…

Soffit 
Soffit is the piece of material that connects the roof overhang to the side of the building. It serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose. Without soffit, your rafters would be fully exposed to the elements. Exposed rafters can lead to mold buildup and rotting beams that will need to be replaced. Soffit also helps your home breathe; with vented soffit, air can flow through the vents to provide proper ventilation of your attic.
Fascia 
Fascia is the board that runs along the roof, acting as a finishing edge that connects to the ends of the rafters and trusses. They also typically hold gutters in place. The primary f…

How Do I Know When to Get a Roof Inspection?

Image
Ensuring that your Lake of the Ozarks roof is in great shape is crucial. Without a solid roof over your head, your entire home is at risk from the outside elements. It may be hard to know if your roof has issues if they aren't obvious, such as a leak. Having a professional roofer at the Lake of the Ozarks complete a roof inspection is a great way to ensure your roof is still in great shape. Not sure if you need a roof inspection? Ask yourself these questions to find out!


Is it possible I have hail or wind damage?  Hail storms and tornadoes are both popular weather occurrences in Missouri. If your home is subject to any type of severe weather, it's possible your roof sustained storm damage. If other homes on your block have roof damage, it's definitely a good idea to have yours checked out. Since we offer free roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks, it doesn't hurt to have your roof looked at after a big storm.

What You Should Do About These 3 Roofing Problems

Image
Your roof is one of the most important construction pieces of your home. Your roof protects your entire home from the outdoor elements, and without a quality roof, your home is susceptible to a lot of damage. Keeping your roof maintained is essential for ensuring your home stays in great shape. Today, our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company has some 3 common roofing problems to watch out for and what to do about them. 

Punctures & Holes  There are a variety of things that can puncture your roof. Hail can cause punctures in your roofing material and wind can blow debris onto your roof, which can also puncture the roof. Wildlife could also be a source of damage to your roof. While storm damage could be highly visible, hail damage typically is not that noticeable. If left alone, continued wear and tear to that damaged spot can lead to bigger problems. Some companies offer free roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks, which can help you determine if your roof has sustained hail dama…
